As a caterer, the majority of your clients will be delightful. They’re excited about their event and, as long as you offer great food and service, will be thankful for your catering services.
However, some clients expect more of you than is reasonable, haggle for discounts, and even cancel events with no warning (and not expecting to pay a dime). Sometimes, even agreeable clients are disappointed because of a misunderstanding about your services.
All this and more can be avoided by using a formal catering contract for each and every event.
You’ll find that by entering the contract catering market it becomes easier to find clients as well. People like the fact that the caterer takes on the responsibility to make the food for their event a hit. It conveys a stronger sense of professionalism. There are many advantages of contract catering for both you and them.

Catering Contract PDF
Every event needs an exclusive catering agreement, but who has time to work up a new contract for every job? That’s where a catering contract PDF comes in handy.
Our fillable template includes all the basics that apply to nearly every job. All you have to do is fill in the details for each particular one and you’re all set. Sending contracts was never so easy!
What should a catering contract include?
There are catering terms and conditions that need to be included in every contract. This covers what you will provide and what is expected of the client. For example, you will agree to bring the equipment necessary to set up the food. They agree to make payments on time as specified in the contract.
There are many catering contracts available but following a catering policy template like ours will help ensure that you don’t miss anything important. You can also fill out a catering contract worksheet that will help you choose the right details to include for your type of catering service. Remember, if something goes wrong and it isn’t covered in your contract, you won’t have any protection against it.
Using a premade catering form also helps you with the all-important catering cancellation policy for event planners and all your clients.
Apart from the event venue cancellation policy, you need a catering contract cancellation policy as well. Reserving a date for a client who cancels is bad enough, but if they cancel after you’ve already bought the food, you could be out a lot of money. A clear catering cancellation policy for catering events will help avoid this problem.
Follow our contract cancellation policy sample to ensure that you have an iron-clad contract in place for those few clients who could cause you a big problem. This free, fillable form has all the information you need to get your catering contract up and running in minutes.
After that, it’s simply a matter of tweaking your contract with the particular details of each event. The hard part has already been done!
